2008 Renewable Fuels Standards

EPA Announces 2008 Renewable Fuels Standard

Someone forgot to tell our government that there is an infrastructure problem facing the renewable fuels industry. There aren't enough rail cars to get all of the ethanol to where it needs to be. The blenders can't get the ethanol from the railheads to their plants. You can't put ethanol in a pipeline because of the corrosive nature of the product. In many parts of the country ethanol is unavailable. We can produce it, we just can't get it to where it is needed.
